We have all seen the devastating images that have come out of Lee County, and all over the state of Florida, following the landfall of Hurricane Ian.
“We are devastated. Our hearts go out to every resident who is impacted. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is mobile and will stop at nothing to help our residents,” said Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno said on September 29 as he surveyed the destruction in Fort Myers.
“We will get through this together. We are one community and we will overcome this tragedy,” Marceno added.
As the recovery has been well underway, people in the impacted areas are still picking up the pieces of their lives, and mapping out what tomorrow looks like.
Something as simple as a bottle of water, fresh clothing, a hot meal, or a smile from a stranger could make an impact to the folks in these enormously hard-hit areas.
Attitude is everything, and one Deputy from Lee County Sheriff’s Office has an incredible attitude in the wake of devastation as he directs traffic.
“Deputy Carl Elie is making the most out of his long hours directing traffic. He was reassigned temporarily from Court Ops to assist the boots on the ground. Thank you, Deputy Elie,” said Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Elie can be seen dancing, smiling, and offering a warm greeting as vehicles pass through an intersection.
Watch Deputy Elie in action in the clip below and thank you sir for your service.
